There are few things more agonizing than a child custody case. Unfortunately, there are many such cases throughout New York City and around the United States each and every year. Anyone who has ever been through one of these custody disputes understands just how tough they can be, and how difficult allegations often get tossed around as each side tries to prove its case. At times like that, it’s important to have a private investigator you trust to help gather the evidence you need to maintain custody of your child and secure his or her best interests.

Child Custody Cases

There are different types of child custody investigation cases, involving different issues. Ultimately, however, every child custody case comes down to an attempt to ensure that the child’s best interests are protected. So, whether your case involves an attempt to gain legal custody or physical custody on either a sole or joint custody basis, you’ll need to be able to provide solid evidence to demonstrate that you’re the best person to exercise custody over that child.

The Investigator’s Role in Child Custody Cases

Private investigators can be an integral resource for providing that solid evidence. When someone else currently has custody of your child, the investigator can surveille that custodian to gather evidence showing how that child is being treated. That can be invaluable for documenting abuse, neglect, or other evidence that could prove that the custodian is an unfit guardian.

For example, a good investigator can observe the custodian’s habits to find evidence that he or she abuses alcohol or drugs, engages in criminal activity, or exhibits reckless behavior that could place the child’s interests at risk.

Of course, if you already have custody of the child and are trying to maintain it, the investigator can provide important evidence against anyone trying to challenge that custody. During a divorce or separation, that could involve finding evidence that your spouse neglects, abuses, or otherwise mistreats your children during visits. The goal in such investigations is to show that you’re the best possible custody choice for your child.

To achieve these goals, the private investigator may be required to:

  • Conduct physical or electronic surveillance
  • Interview potential witnesses, including family and friends
  • Conduct asset searches in cases where one parent is trying to hide assets to avoid meeting financial responsibilities for the child
  • Perform thorough background checks on your spouse and his or her associates
  • Preform all duties in accordance with established law while being mindful of the need for absolute discretion
